Groupon Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results And Agreement To Acquire Ticket Monster

Groupon, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRPN) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

"Our Local business showed continued strength in the quarter, particularly in North America,” said Eric Lefkofsky, CEO of Groupon. “Mobile adoption continued to increase in Q3, reflected in our record 9 million app downloads. We’re pleased with our progress, but we still have work to do as we transform the business from our daily deal email roots to a full ecommerce marketplace.”

“We’re also excited to announce today that we’ve signed an agreement to acquire Ticket Monster, one of the leading ecommerce companies in Korea,” added Lefkofsky. “Ticket Monster has been successful building a mobile commerce business in one of the largest markets in the world. It will serve as the cornerstone of our Asian business, bringing scale and ecommerce expertise to that region.”
